About us

The Shoes was opened in May 2008 - after many years working in the licensed trade and running restaurants and bars including bed and breakfast properties, we decided it was time to invest in our own property and found the perfect location and property when The Shoes came up for sale.  

Formerly known as The Three Horseshoes located in Gilesgate Durham.  The property has undergone extensive renovation including a fully refurbished bar and beer garden with 3 luxurious letting bedrooms. 

The Shoes is situated in Gilesgate  - close to Durham City - ideal those wishing to stay in a family run bed and breakfast close to the city centre without paying city centre prices.
